To put that in perspective, an end-of-season rebuild on one of our 200 Honda race motors (Rebore, Wiseco piston, SKF main bearings, and a quality rod/big end kit fitted by one of the top crank builders in the country) comes in at just shy of £300!40

the forks are dropped thru as far as they will go , they are touching bottom of bars, cannot move any more

not sure about shorten seat ,

will look at light height later , easy job to move

I am starting to build another one , this time a cad racer , with a humped seat
